I think I fixed my sourdough starter, using some advice from the web and a bit of patience.

I have a loaf set out to rise tonight. It should theoretically be ready sometime between 8 and 11 am tomorrow. In the meantime, I made some really tasty pancakes with the starter I would have otherwise discarded -- hence the confidence about having fixed the starter.

The sourdough site I used recommended running the starter on the counter for 30-90 days to develop the flavor completely. I can see where more time would mean more complexity. We'll see how it continues to play out.

Pimento. The word conjures up olives with pepper stuck in the location of the pit, no? Or perhaps another word for sweet pepper. That's what we normally use it for.

When you're talking about Jamaican cooking? Pimento means allspice.
